The American Kings
Growth in Presidential Power from George Washington to Barack Obama
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Robert Shinkoskey's The American Kings is a thoughtful meditation on the causes and consequences of presidential accumulation of power. Taking each American president in turn, Shinkoskey drills down to the essence of each administration's quest for influence and reaches powerful and frightening conclusions about the potential for tyranny."
--Justin S. Vaughn, coeditor of The Rhetoric of Heroic Expectations
